Just thinking, how do demons get into the world? Aside from the one the
Bastard sends, for death magic. Is there a leak somewhere, or are they ALL
sent by the Bastard to liven things up? Maybe, when the souls of the dead
go to the gods, a demon can go back the other way. Some other way?
Micki: This is such a good question, Kevin, and I'm a little afraid to
speculate in case I get a Theory in my head, and it is proved wrong in the
But . . . maybe it's one of the longer-range plans of the Gods. Maybe the
Bastard or the Mother (and possibly the sister and brother but not the
Father, I'm almost certain) can send a demon into the world because they
foresee a need for it four or five centuries down the line.
For the matter, one could speculate on how people get into the world, too.
I suppose in that universe, they are sent to . . . be food for the gods?
Their glorious garden? Maybe the demons are just another variety.
